About Joe McGinniss's Fatal Vision:
In 1970, the country was gripped by a brutal triple-murder at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Colette MacDonald, then pregnant, and her two young daughters were beaten and stabbed to death in their home. The prime suspect was Colette's husband, a charismatic military doctor and Green Beret named Jeffrey MacDonald.
MacDonald invited writer Joe McGinniss to write a book about the case. Fatal Vision, published in 1983, has become a true crime classic, but not without controversy. In 1984, MacDonald sued McGinniss for fraud, claiming he misrepresented his intentions, making Fatal Vision an incredibly compelling story and an excellent example of the complex questions surrounding free speech and journalistic integrity.
